How to Navigate #FakeNews as a Communications Professional
Wednesday, May 31 | 1:30 - 3:00 pm ET
Digital Experience Manager
Join PR News on May 31 for a webinar that discusses how to adapt to an era when many people get their news from Facebook and will believe whatever they read there—and share it. Unscrupulous internet entrepreneurs have figured out how to monetize false and inflammatory articles, and fake stories involving your brand or industry can impact stock prices, reputations and more. How should you prepare for this eventuality, and even better, how can you counteract it?
This trend has also damaged trust in traditional news outlets, and has had an impact on the value of earned media in these outlets.
Our expert trainers will discuss how fake news could affect your work as a professional communicator, and how to fight back ethically and with transparency. Using case studies and examples, they will offer new ideas for connecting with wary, untrusting audiences in ways that fight back against dishonesty, and how to get leadership on board with these efforts.
